The CROSSing…

We are created in his image. (Gen1:27) He endows us with reflections of His Character and Nature.(Rom8:29)  Consistent with that truth we are always true to our nature as He is true to His, Immutable, and consistent.(Mal3:6)  We are true to a nature that is damning and to our detriment. (Rom3:23, 6:23)  He is true to a nature for good and for His glory. (Rom1:20, John1:1, Tit1:2, Ps9:7/100:5, I Pt1:25) 

Two parallel tracks, never to meet, one sovereign the other subordinate each heading in opposite direction. (Is55:8)  The fullness of His character is displayed in that the Sovereign creates a point at which two parallel lines meet, impossible but for grace.(Mk10:27)  At that point courses reverse and the nature of one begins to change, the mirror image becomes more complete.(I Cor. 13:12)  We begin to reflect not only consistency in nature but character as well.  Our destination forever changed and our arrival at the point of His purpose and design.(Icor15:19-23) This is what happens when two lines cross.

“for while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will scarcely die for a righteous person-though perhaps for a good person one would die- but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us.(Rom5:6-8)”
